A Poem by Giulia King

The promise of tomorrow hung in the air, 
 Like crisp morning dew. 
 I wet my pen with ink as black as my soul.
 I stare at the blank paper.
 You gave me a poem to write. 
 A new chapter has unfold. 
 Still, the visions of us never stopped. 
 This suffocating silence haunts me. 
 May my tormented soul find peace.
 May my ink lead me somewhere kind.

A recent heartbreak made me write again.
But something wonderful will come out of this, right? -Right.

Well I can say how much I can relate. Heart breaks give you words that means allot than it’s usual vocabulary. Haven’t asked any one to have a read at my poems. But may be you could have a look and find peace in knowing you ain’t the only one.

Artwork and words. Dear Giulia. You made the reader feel the words and they understood them.
"May my tormented soul find peace.
May my ink lead me somewhere kind."
I believe when we reach the dead-end, we must find some kind of light. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

As Cobain once said, "thank you tragedy. I needed you for my art"

Seems like heart ache can inspire more than other intense emotions.
But be wary of the melancholy muse.

Enjoyed it.

Tears transform into ink, which in turn will write a beautiful story for the future. After rain, the sun always shines :) Wonderfully done! Lots of hugs

The raw emotion is riveting. Heartbreaks can be a great motivation to a writer because when your are vulnerable you are honest. Your heart feels burdened unless you bleed those feeling out in form of words.

And yes, heartbreaks suck and everyone will tell you that it gets better in time. True. But I also believe that you can either wait for it to get better or you can get stronger.

I quite like this. The first two lines are my favorite.

Sorry Giulia, I know well of what you speak. Love lost will be love found again … older perhaps, wiser … yes … willing to chance love again? We hope so.
The illustration is exceptional … is it yours?
I can see the image of that love torn out leaving only a shell to ponder.

Take care.

I really, really love this. My only suggestion is in your use of the word pencil. Pencils usually hold lead and won’t hold ink. You might consider changing the word pencil to pen (as in the old school ink pen artists use. And I really love this and heartbreaks are often a real b***h to get over. But, not that I would wish heartbreak on anyone (I’ve had my share already), heartbreak sometimes leads to profound literature and verse, and this verse is profoundly rendered.

Hi Willys,
Thank you so much for correcting me. I wrote this poem down on a napkin and didn't.. read more
"you gave me a poem to write" almost as if heartbreak could be seen as a us material for poetry, hard as it might feel.
the pic reminds me of "Scream"
perhaps that is what our pens do when we get hurt enough...
